Robert T. Kiyosaki is best known as the author of Rich Dad Poor Dad. This is the #1
personal finance book of all time, which has challenged and changed the way tens of
millions of people around the world think about money.
He is an entrepreneur, educator, and investor who believes that each of us has the power to makes changes in our lives, take control of our financial future, and live the rich life we deserve.
With perspectives on money and investing that often contradict conventional wisdom, Robert has earned an international reputation for straight talk, irreverence, and courage and has become a passionate and outspoken advocate for financial education.
His point of view is that the old advice of "get a good job, save money, get out of debt, invest for the long term, and diversify" is bad (both obsolete and flawed) advice. This challenges the status quo. His assertion that "your house is not an asset" has stirred controversy, but it has been proven to be accurate in our economy's current financial crisis.
Kiyosaki is also the founder of the Rich Dad Company, a private financial education company that provides personal finance and business education to people through books and videos.
